Episode 187- Eric Goldschmidt..Don’t limit yourself by being a one-trick-pony

Erics bio :
Working as a candle maker for a few years, Eric’s interest in molten media was born in 1993. After three years of working with wax, flameworking found him. In 1996, Eric’s roommate set up a torch in their garage and Eric became captivated by the processes and possibilities of flameworking. Throughout the past 21 years he has devoted his efforts to practicing and developing the techniques of several well-known glass instructors, while studying and assisting with many of the World’s most talented glass artists. These experiences have given him a vast array of techniques from which to draw. He combines this wealth of knowledge with his own interests in the subtle energies of the natural world, delicate forms, and the capture of raw human emotions to create original new works.
Eric held the position of Resident Flameworker at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass for six years where he was able to share his knowledge and passion for glass with thousands of students and museum visitors. He then worked with Arribas Brothers Company where he designed, developed, and produced works at Walt Disney World. He returned to The Corning Museum of Glass in the spring of 2008 to accept a position as Team Leader of the Flameworkers, and he is currently the Supervisor of Properties of Glass Programs. This position allows him to develop demonstrations that help to educate, inspire, and spread the word of the very fascinating glass World to hundreds of thousands of visitors per year. Of course, Eric will always be dedicated to the expression of his own voice through his favorite medium of glass. He continues to exhibit his work and teach both in the United States and abroad.
